AN ANCIENT INDIAN ART
Meditation is an ancient Indian art (called ‘Dhyana’ in India) whose magical effect was known to the Indians thousands of years ago, and they taught it to the whole world. Unfortunately further research on the art was not carried on in India to simplify it and use it as an effective treatment for various ailments. Although research continued to be conducted by Western psychotherapists and saints of Indian origin living there. Various methods evolved time to time to maximize the benefits and simplify the art.
WHY PEOPLE FALL ILL
Before evaluating the health benefits and effectiveness of meditation we have to explore the reasons behind illness. Modern life style is taking us away from the nature and disturbing natural rhythm of communication between mind and body. This rhythmic disturbance creates hindrance in the functions of our body, causing a situation, which becomes a breeding ground for bacteria and diseases. In addition, lack of physical exercise encourages such a negative process. If we are able to evolve a procedure that can help us to restore healthy communication between our mind and body it will strengthen the immune system of our body and make us healthier.
Meditation is the best antidote to the unhealthy process. It harmonizes the communication between the various parts of our body, especially the mind and the body, bringing a natural rhythm in them.
